The Innovation Wing Two aims to serve as an enabling platform for Engineering researchers to interact and collaborate synergistically with researchers and professionals across various disciplines to tackle grand challenges and deliver research outputs with significant impact to Hong Kong and global communities, and at the same time to share the Faculty’s latest research achievements/findings/outputs with the large HKU and Hong Kong communities in widely accessible forms for example exhibitions and talks on research topics.
It favorably considers applications for using its venue and LED wall for the relevant events/activities in the form of, e.g.,
- Research-related events/activities of the Faculty of Engineering and its departments;
- Joint activities for Engineering researchers to interact and collaborate synergistically with researchers and professionals across various disciplines;
- The application is open to academic staff in Engineering.
- Supervisor: The proposal should identify an academic staff in Engineering as the supervisor and contact person of the event/activity.
- Supporting staff: The proposal should identify supporting staff for the event/activity.
